Martha's tea pots

As most of you may know Martha Ess has designed some lovely tatting teapot patterns in the past. In her latest book 'Button Jar' she has this cute little teapot.   I really cannot stop making them although the last one (bottom) sort of went wrong and came out a little larger than the others.  I think they will look great on cards, as a brooch or just given away.

They also seem to work well with variegated thread.  Now to look in the book and tat with more buttons. 


  1. Your teapots look great.

  2. Hi Sally,
    Love the colour combination of the last tea pot. What sort of tea leaves are you going to use? At least you have your own ready made tea strainer!!!

  3. You are enjoying the new button book, aren't you! My copy has arrived too, and I'm looking forward to trying the patterns.

  4. Such pretty teapots! There must be a new technique in there. Looks woven! Is it difficult?
